together. president obama feeling emboldened about winning re-election. he's demanding that the bush era tax cuts expire for the wealthiest americans. that's something that republicans have typically opposed, but today house speaker john boehner seemed to suggest he was open to wiggle room on the issue of taxes or fresh revenues. on the other hand, democrats are willing to compromise on sacred cows, entitlement reform. let's hear more of what the congressional leaders had to say after the meeting. take a listen. >> we should have a goal in terms of how much deficit reduction. we should have a deadline before christmas. we should share some milestones of success so that confidence can build. >> we have the cornerstones of being able to work something out. we're both going to give up some of the things that we know are a problem. >> we're prepared to put revenue on the table, provided we fix the real problem. >> reporter: tamron, if they can't avoid going over the fiscal cliff, it could mean economic disaster and the economy slips back into recession. i think we have a graphic of what that

obama got a pass on benghazi during the election so there's some of that but one thing i would point out to you from senator collins' remarks is that she is still looking for answers from susan rice about a time in 1998 when she was in charge of the region and in the state department when our embassy in kenya was bombed so these senators are moving to a point of saying that susan rice may not be qualified to be secretary of state and i think that's an important thing to be looking at, going one step beyond. she's not qualified in their opinion. >> i get what you're saying there and if that's their opinion and they want to use, for example, as you used the example that susan collins did, that would be the appropriate place perhaps the nomination process but everything we've been told, thus about benghazi, finding out why four souls to lost, to give their families answers. this is not about the secretary of state nomination. this is who changed talking points, so on and so forth, right? >> it may be. >> it may be. which is why some people are concerned. the mere fact we have to say it
